This is perhaps the single most important characteristic you can have.
To be open-minded means to remove your personal prejudices and biases from any situation and completely immerse yourself in another experience.
This will help you to learn, grow, strengthen and believe in yourself.
It means being flexible and adaptive to new experiences and ideas.
There is an honesty that comes with being open-minded because it means admitting that you aren’t all knowing.
It means being willing to change your view when presented with new facts, ideas and evidence.
It doesn’t mean that you change who you are, it is more of a level of understanding that goes beyond having the ego of being all-knowing.
Having an open mind will lead to new experiences, different opportunities and new level of understanding.
How can you develop an open mind?
- Become inquisitive
- Learn something new
- Practice meditation
When you have the ability to objectively look at all options, you open up a whole new realm of possibilities.
Expand your mind; expand your world!
